Iran freed two Chinese nationals who were arrested last month after they were caught photographing military nuclear plants, Israel Radio reported. Beijing released a statement on Monday saying that the two, who worked for Chinese companies based in Iran, accidentally took pictures of sensitive facilities while taking measurements. The Chinese Foreign Ministry and its Embassy in Teheran warned Chinese nationals to avoid similar incidents in the future.
